Hi It’s Annette again! I’m so happy to be here and share with you a fun new free printable to keep you sane in the summer time. Be sure to check out my blog, Tips From a Typical Mom, and follow me on social media. Links are at the bottom of this post.
I have the sneaking suspicion that if you have kids, you have the same problem I do during the summer months. Kids knocking at the door non stop to see if your kids can play. There is nothing wrong with that! I absolutely love the fact that my kids have so many friends that live so close, but sometimes, my kids can’t play and it gets a little annoying to answer the door every 5 minutes. That’s why I created these little door hangers so friends know if it’s OK to knock and ask to play. And what’s even better, it’s a free printable for you to use too!
There are two different versions. One to hang with ribbon if you want to be fancy schmancy, or a traditional hole in the card to hang on the knob. One side says “We can play” and it’s green so the younger kids understand they can “go”.
**Disclaimer: We are renting, and I know how atrocious our door looks. They did a dandy job of painting it, NOT! So I tried to photoshop out all the fingerprints and dings, but there are still some visible. Don’t judge, I have 5 kids ;)
And the other side says “We can’t play” and it’s red so they know to stop.
I just cut out the signs, put them back to back, and laminated them. Then I punched a hole in the ribbon one and slid through a ribbon and tied a bow.
On this version I just cut the signs out, put them back to back and laminated them. Then I cut a slit to the circle on the side and cut the circle out. I like this one better, it doesn’t get played with as often as the one with the bow.
I hope you enjoy these! They are a lifesaver in the summer and after school when your kids are doing chores or homework. Then they don’t get distracted by the door bell either!
